Buhari Rejoices with Shagari at 90


The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, has congratulated former President Shehu Shagari on his 90th birthday anniversary.

Shagari was president from October 1, 1979 to December 31, 1983 when he was toppled by General Buhari.

The congratulatory message personally signed by General Buhari  reads: “Although  I  am  physically  unable to  be  present  as  I  am  abroad  on  previously  arranged assignments, I wish to send my good wishes to former President Shehu Shagari on his 90th birthday.

“Alhaji Shehu Shagari is now the Grand Old Man of Nigerian politics, having been in the frame of public affairs since the colonial days.

“Although my government forcibly removed his government, he has always shown me civility and much courtesy. His contributions at the National  Council  of  State  meetings  which  I  attend  have  always  been constructive  and eloquent.

“I wish the former President many more years of good health and peaceful retirement.”
